Home School Links

Updated: May 8

I have a lot of links saved from previous research on home schooling. I am saving them here because I often get friends asking me where to start and it's handy just shoot over one link.

 

The first thing you are going to want to do is look up your state's laws on home schooling. For example, mine is Georgia.

Georgia is pretty relaxed! But I would still document anything and everything just to play it safe. The main thing is to submit your declaration of intent.

Everything else, take a deep breath; I'm sure things will start falling into place in no time. Don't be in a hurry or feel overwhelmed with everything you'll see in the links below.


Get you a notebook and start taking some notes.



Georgia Homeschool Law At a Glance <-- Tons of info on this whole site!

Every question you can think of is probably on here. I mean that. Click around. Take notes.

Remember, you don't have to know it all at once.

The most important thing is to first pray about the decision and if it's a 'yes', pull your child from school and get that declaration of intent submitted on the GDOE website.


 

The next thing I would do is join some groups on social media. Ask any questions you have there! So many moms, dads, and educators are ready to help. Find out where you find social gatherings, too. Home school families know getting out and being social is important.


Here are a few that I found:


It also provides LEGAL ADVICE and REPRESENTATION if it's needed. That's a nice security blanket if you ask me.

 

One of my first thoughts years ago when I was considering home school was, "What does school look like from home?!?!"

What I began to notice from other home school families is every single family does things differently. Don't sweat those details. There is no "one way"....just do what's best for your family. Having a nice, quiet space to work is truly what's most important.

And for the love of all that is holy, don't get on Pinterest or a mom group and look at their perfect photos and think you have to do that. I was feeling inadequate in no time, haha.

 

This is something I saved when I was researching. There are so many options available!

Be encouraged if your family is led to home school.

 

High School Diploma


That is something between you and your family.

Many home school families are successful without one. Many families choose an accredited curriculum in which a high school diploma is obtained. A high school diploma is not out of reach for home school families.

I know with Abeka, they have a whole graduation ceremony and everything. They get to walk across a stage and receive their diploma.

 

That's it for now! If I think of anything else, I will throw it down into the comment section below. So be sure to check there every now and then if you are interested.
